Tulane Offers Fields

'13 prospect Brandon Fields got his first FBS offer today from the Tulane Green Wave. Read further to get his reaction. Some schools are recruiting Fields for quarterback. What position is Tulane looking at Fields to fill?

Brandon Fields (St. Michael-Baton Rouge) previously pulled in offers from FCS programs Southern and Fordham, and today Tulane came through with his first FBS offer.

"It feels real good to know a school like Tulane is interested in me," said Fields. "Coach David Johnson offered me. He said they got out of a meeting and had watched my film. They want to offer me as an athlete or DB."

Fields has logged starts at both wide receiver and quarterback in the past for St. Michael, a Class 4A program.

"I'm open to playing different positions in college," he said. "I love quarterback and that's where my heart is, but I'm not going to say that I'm going to stay at that position in college."

Fields visited Tulane last year.

"I enjoyed meeting the staff," he said. "They're cool."

Most of the 2011 staff departed from Tulane with former head coach Bob Toledo.

The Green Wave is in its first year under head coach Curtis Johnson, who retained ace recruiter Jason Rollins from Toledo's staff.

Johnson is another coach with an excellent reputation. He served as head coach at St. Augustine, the New Orleans Catholic school powerhouse, prior to taking a job at Tulane.

Fields is also interested in FIU, which signed multiple players from Louisiana in its '12 class.
